Was ok. Nothing seemed super fresh or authentic. Service was fine. Went at an off hour. Food wasnt bad, just nothing special.

We needed a place for 25 people for a Saturday lunch church gathering, and found that Zio's covered patio area met our needs exactly. The restaurant is easy to access (near the corner of Robinson and NW 24th), and the patio provided privacy to socialize without feeling rushed. The staff got our orders right--including special ones for kids and gluten-free... More

We arrived at different times & waiter was attentive to all as we arrived. Was worried about eating at Italian b/c I'm Gluten free, but GF menu had numerous items to choose. Beware though, the Gluten free flat bread offered instead of regular hot bread was not free -- had a minimal charge of $1.49 and not super good. Had... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. Here lately it is slipping fast. Service was adequate Soup was cold Food warm. No refills on water. Server seemed rushed. Food was good. However Hot food is needed Will not return. It needs some time to heal.

This was our second time to visit this restaurant. Both times we have enjoyed our authentic Italian selections. The service was prompt and courteous and drink refills were timely. We especially like the bread and dipping mix (lots of rosemary included). We definitely recommend this location.

I came here for lunch with my daughter. We were seated quickly and immediately had a server to take our drink order. The drinks were served within a couple of minutes. My daughter got the lasagna and I got the cheese ravioli. Both were very hot (like they'd been microwaved) and mine was tough. That bring said, It wasn't bad.... More

We have been fortunate in that when we have gone to eat it has not been packed. The drinks and food arrive in short order. We have gone numerous times and it's one of our favorites in Norman, close and good service. I'm sure, from some people's reviews, busy times can be hectic, but that is where a bit of... More

We went on Memorial Day, maybe that was our mistake! We asked to eat in the patio, when we were seated there was a table beside us that wasn't cleaned off, when we left an hour later, it still wasn't cleaned off. We went for dinner, they weren't terribly busy, but our drink order took 15 minutes because it included... More

My husband and I enjoyed the complimentary yummy bread and italian herbs and olive oil. He got spaghetti with meatballs. The meatballs are beef so great if you're kosher like we are and the sauce is more salty instead of sweet which is also to our liking. I got fettuccini alfredo and had broccoli added to it. It was just... More

Complimentary bread with pesto sauce when you arrive. The pasta was tasty and filling. I am hoping to return here before I leave the city.
